RECALL Alert: TYLENOL for Children/Infants

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ETA: The reason for the recall lifted from Tylenol.com website:

You may have heard that McNeil Consumer Healthcare (the makers of TYLENOL®) is voluntarily recalling certain lots of Children's and Infants' TYLENOL® liquid products that were manufactured between April, 2008 and June, 2008. All products manufactured met internal specifications. However, the company is implementing this recall because during this period, an unused portion of one inactive ingredient did not meet all quality standards. Therefore, as a precautionary measure, it was decided to recall all Children's and Infants' TYLENOL® liquid products listed below, which were made during this time.

Parents and caregivers who have questions or concerns should contact their child's health care provider or our consumer call center at 1-800-962-5357 (available Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time). Consumers can find the lot numbers on the bottom of the box containing the liquid product and also on the sticker that surrounds the product bottle. The lot numbers of the affected products are listed below.

These actions do not apply to Children's TYLENOL® Meltaways and Junior Strength TYLENOL® Meltaways. The voluntary recall applies only to select lots of Children's and Infants' TYLENOL® liquid products.

Here's a complete list of the Children/Infants's Liquid Tylenol that are being recalled. This is what the little takes so I had to go through her medicine cabinet to make sure we don't have any of these listed products.

I lifted this list from Tylenol.com to share it here. Go check your little one's medicine cabinet to make sure you're on the clear on this one.

hi! Tuks. was on disappearing act for the weekend. the Jewish holiday(Yom Kippur) had me preoccupied. as you know it is supposed to be the holiest day of the Jewish religion(F's). no, hindi naman ako nag convert but my environment is infectious. today nga, mga schools are closed and of course, F is off too.

have a great week ahead!
